analyst, david gergen, douglas brinkley, robin, also author and post editor, former news anchor, sally quinn. it is amazing. let's talk about the speech, first of all. how important do you think a speech was this for barack obama and given all his other speeches, where is the significance of this one? >> historically, i believe it is one of the most important speeches he's given in his life. most important. philadelphia during the campaign way back when was a wonderful speech. but because this speech defined what he really believes. it was the clearest delineation that we've had from him. in many ways, he is liberated. he feels liberated. in part because he inherited this mess and we've gotten most of the way out of it economically and the wars are coming to an end. also, because he has tried to reach out to republicans and tried to be at the center and it hasn't worked. now he's got a statement that firmly addresses a liberal agenda that is very much in the tradition of king and of lincoln and he has rallied his base. we'll be talking in the next few days about all the negatives and t

chief washington correspondent and douglas brinkley, the noted presidential historian back in washington today for the president's inauguration. we saw the president take the oath of office and deliver his second inaugural address and the president and other dignitaries are now heading into the traditional lunch in statuary hall in the u.s. capitol. also in the capitol today we have u.s. representative john lewis. he's a representative from the state of georgia and one of the great leaders of the civil rights movement. this, of course, being martin luther king day in addition to inauguration day. and we wanted to speak with congressman lewis now if we can switch to him. congressman lewis, can you hear us? >> yes, i can hear you very well. >> pelley: you know, congressman lewis, to bob schieffer and i it sounded very much-- this speech the president just delivered-- sounded very much as a civil rights speech but including not just the struggle that you fought, sir, but also the struggle of women and of gay americans. >> it was all all-inclusive speech. the president was very clear that we

, douglas brinkley, professor at rice university. clearly, the president is laying down the gauntlet here. he says common sense is going to prevail. but he seems very confident, he said it twice, that the american people are on his side when it comes to separating these two issues. moving forward, paying the bills, and worrying about raising the debt limit later. is this a good strategy? >> well, it is, and it's also just the box he happens to be in right now. i think the key line today is that we are not a deadbeat nation, and come hell or high water, we've got to pay our bills. but more importantly, in 2012, i thought president obama really was the firewall candidate for president, the progressive firewall. he is constantly saying, you will not touch medicare and medicaid and social security. he's a protector, really, of the new deal and great society programs that's facing a great reaction. the tea party right, the conservative movement that wants to dismantle and roll back a lot of these measures. whether it's, you know, epa or public housing, you can make a laundry list of 20. so thi

. he talked about a whole range of things with douglas brinkley, the historian. at one point, he said he was okay with what geithner had done. he didn't think it needed to be reinstituted. you get the sense between lew whose expertise does not include wall street and a president himself, you're going to get the status quo. >> bill: michael good for you to join us this morning. you can follow michael hirsch at nationaljournal.com. the "full court press," here we go on a friday. january 11. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." @Ñ >> she gets the comedians laughing... >> that's hilarious! >> ...and the thinkers thinking. >> okay, so there's wiggle-room in the ten commandments is what you're telling me. >> she's joy behar. >> and current will let me say anything. >> only on current tv. >> bill: how healthy are we as americans? we'll find out at the top of the next hour. pete summer. >> it is nice you'll get a second opinion. taking your e-mails on any topic at any time on that topic. >> bill: complete physical exam coming up. >> bill, you're cured. i wouldn't be surprised if it c
